Mr ANTHONY (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Will the Minister for Commerce lay upon the table of the House or otherwise make available to honorable members the two reports of the special committee that was appointed about ten weeks ago to inquire into conditions in the dairying industry? Can the Minister indicate the Government's decision regarding an increase of price of butter which, it is understood, was recommended by that committee as being necessary to ensure equity in the butter producing industry? Was the Minister correctly reported in the press as having stated that before the increased price for butter could be granted, the consumers' interests would have to be considered? If that be so, did the Minister apply the same principle when he approved of the recent increase of the price for wheat?
